Reaching out to the community through music

-A A +A
By Kirsten Laskey

As missionaries through the Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints Church, Sister Ormsby and Sister Jensen are reaching out in an attempt to form a bond with the local community. Their tool to create ties between themselves and Los Alamos is music.

Ormsby and Jensen will present a devotional set to music titled, “The Restoration,” at 6 p.m. Sunday at the Los Alamos Ward of the LDS church.

“Basically it’s going to be explaining in music how our religion came about,” Ormsby said.

Jensen added, “As missionaries, it is our whole purpose to teach the gospel and our beliefs … to reach as many people as possible and one of the best ways to bring the spirit to people is through music.”

Through this devotional, people will “probably have a better understanding of what we believe in and where we come from,” Ormsby said. They’ll get the information, “right from the horse’s mouth.”

The devotional will feature local talent, which according Ormsby and Jensen, comes in abundance in Los Alamos.

Jensen said they had no idea how much talent exists in the area.

The two women, who are from Albuquerque, are serving an 18-month-long mission here in Los Alamos.
